To date, the best event I have thrown was something I’ve been doing since I was 18 years old and that was BeerFest. That small idea grew from 32 people, to 64 people, to 128 people. Over the course of nine years, it went from a small party that required four kegs, to an all day drinking extravaganza that required 14. It needed weeks of preparation. It needed staff to run it. It became an event to travel to.
On Saturday, July 22, I very seriously on making the Water Cooler Sports Open the next “BeerFest”.
This golf tourney is not just a bunch of booze hounds going at it (well… not exclusively that at least). I guess there is a sense of “growing up” in that the event isn’t a drinking game competition… But it is way more than that.
The Water Cooler Sports Open starting strong at 40 people is awesome to me, because this is a charity golf outing. This year it may be 10 teams, but you would be high to think at some point, this thing won’t be maxed out at 18 teams and we don’t take up an entire golf course that day… And what does that end up meaning? Sure our event grew, but Movember really ends up winning.
And though I promise to do everything in my power to make the day great, we aren’t exclusively there for ourselves… We actually are giving back and that’s pretty damn awesome. Listen, BeerFest is fun and it brings a lot of people together, but it never rose a single dollar for anyone (besides obviously the local Anheuser-Busch distributor).
I’m stoked to get this thing off the ground. I’m pumped to be working with Movember and build them a sick event year-after-year… And I’m pumped to be seeing everyone in less than two weeks!!
Grip It & Rip It,
P.S. If you can’t make it but still want to donate to add to the “Big Check” that we’ll be giving to Movember at the end of the day, you can do that here (anonymously if you want) and we’ll add it to the grand total for the WCS Open.
